Accounts filed to Companies House this week show her business, PMWB Ltd, raked in £10.7million between April to November last year alone.

Phoebe, 36, paid herself a dividend of £1.4million.

She earned £11.4million in 2019 for a full 12 months.

It means she has banked £22.1million since April 2019.

Phoebe is in big demand as a writer and has worked on global smash Killing Eve and Bond film No Time To Die. She also voiced droid L3-37 in Star Wars film Solo.

Recently, she agreed a deal said to be worth £15million to create and produce shows for Amazon Prime Video.

Phoebe, who grew up in West London, spent most of her 20s out of work, “broke, demoralised and angry”.

After getting small roles in movie The Iron Lady and the second series of ITV thriller Broadchurch, she got her big break when she adapted her Fleabag stage play into a series for the BBC in 2016.

When she collected three Emmys for Fleabag in 2019, singer Taylor Swift wrote a gushing tribute, calling her “an extremely driven and unfathomably talented woman unwinding in a lounge chair surrounded by her winnings”.
